School Prayers

Prayers we say together include the Our Father and the Hail Mary.

Morning Prayer

Father in heaven, you love me,

You are with me

night and day.

I want to love you always

in all I do and say.

I’ll try to please you, Father

Bless me through the day.




Lunch time prayers

Lunch time prayers are led by the children using prayer dice but a favourite of the children here at St. Mary’s is;

Bless us O God

As we sit together

Bless the food we eat today

Bless the hands that make the food

Bless us O God



End of day Prayer

At the end of each school day we come together to pray. This is our end of day school prayer:

God Our Father, I come to say,

Thank you for your love today.

Thank you for my family

and all the friends

you give to me.

Guard me in the dark of night,

and in the morning send your light.
